In a previous post about the Alaska Airlines Rewards Credit Card, I talked about their new, limited-time, sign-up bonus. Well, I just received the coupon code for the aforementioned “companion fare” and went ahead and booked the flight for December.
Obviously, flights to Hawaii over Christmas are going to be expensive, which is why we decided that this would be a great time to use the companion fare.
At $1,192 / RT Ticket, it’s definitely inflated compared to flights during off-peak times which tend to sit between $400-$800 from LAX. But, combine the peak season fare with Alaska’s perk and the total price for BOTH tickets comes to $1,247.00, with the second ticket being only $55. That’s how I saved almost $1,200.
I’d say meeting the $1,000 minimum spend on this credit card was totally worth it. Another benefit, I will get another “companion fare” deposited to my account on Jan 1, 2018.
